RE: Trailer too long for truck?

Tow a 8k TT with overall length of 27' with 3500 SRW Ram diesel back and forth to Arizona. I would not want to do it with a 1500. Been in windy conditions and the 8500 lbs truck keeps it planted. YEP, a 1500 can tow it but can it "HANDLE" it in unforeseen conditions.

RE: 5th wheel hitch suggestion

B&W 100% US Made CURT Communist China Made You decide. Well this fact alone has changed my mind about which hitch to buy. Curt 5th wheel hitches are a China product. Some of their other products are USA but not the 5th wheel hitch!! I will purchase the B&W Companion. I found it very deceiving of CURT to talk about American Manufacturing but in reality as mentioned they have their 5er hitches produced in China. I have a letter from CURT stating so. I do have some other US Made CURT items and they are top quality. Buyer beware, look at the labels. YES your President of the "B&W HeavyWeight FanBoy Club" thanks you and your membership is on it's way!!!

RE: replacing Brake Pads

Be sure to turn the rotors. Flush the fluid too. YES and properly lubricate all mating surfaces on the calipers.

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

Wind with soft tires and longer TT will effect how it handles.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

" 6 spd vs 10 spd would make very little difference in flat out performance." I have said this for a LONG time.

RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

Just a bit of tail squat. :B Actually it looks good and I stand by my comment it may be at or within the RAWR.

RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

Truck it's self is probably not overloaded. Take 10k off and then take 15% of the load that's only 6,450#. My pin is 6k and I am at my RAWR of 9,750#.

RE: Towing capacity vs max cargo weight rating

Well typicality goose-neck trailers are flatbeds and you can adjust the load to get the pin weight down. 15% is very standard and safe IMHO, that is 2,265#. I call BS on Ford's numbers.

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

Just being a duelly won’t help, mabe if it was an f550. Too funny. I guarantee you my pin at 6k is much more. My measly 3500 DRW RAM sets perfectly level. Oh yea my RV weighs 24k.

RE: Towing with a dually or single?need help please

GVWR should be higher but one more pound to 14,001# will put the DRW into commercial territory. ?? I don't understand. For non commercial use, single vehicles under 26k gvw don't have any drivers license requirements. For commercial, single vehicles basically have 10k and 26k limits on drivers file, drivers license required. Maybe some states have different registration requirements over 14k? Just like some states have weird laws about lighter trucks as well, like NY and CA? What is magical about 14k gvw? In any state I could drive it with a normal drivers license and in WA at least there's no additional inspection requirements or anything, just buy the weight tabs you want. Didn’t say license. Insurance and registration changes at 14,001# in many locations. Example the F450 stays at Class 3 for the above reasons when it clearly should be Class 4.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

^ I understand the concept and terminology. I'm simply confused as to what your point is. So is he. :h I didn't think I was confused but now I'm beginning to think I must be.:) Clear as the Palm Springs, CA skies today!

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

Hum, I have known that for 5+ years now! I have known this since September 2011 when I bought my first DRW.

RE: Looking for portable electric space heater for rv!

I bought a Mr Heater for my Boat three years ago. Never had a chance to use it yet. :h Maybe you should be thanking your lucky stars? An "open flame" especially below deck on a boat is a huge invitation to disaster.. There is a reason as to why even non cabin cruiser type boats have a "bilge purge" blower that you run BEFORE even starting an engine.. Build up of fuel flamible fumes below deck is real and lighting off a "Buddy heater or any other open flame device" below deck may be not such a good "friend" move. Not to mention, I can't imagine sucking in burning propane fumes for any length of time would be all that good on your oxygen levels in your blood.. THANKS for the info. If I use it I will have it in a well ventilated area. It's a 23' one level boat.
